About the employer

We are a very busy salon based in the beautiful village of Islip, covering roughly a ten mile radius, with clients coming from Wellingborough, Kettering, Rushden and surrounding villages. We pride ourselves on the fact we offer all hairdressing services to men, women and children. I think the main success of our salon is due to the very friendly staff who make everyone feel welcome, spending time on full consultations and only using top quality products as in Goldwell, TIGI, and ghd. Goldwell is a prestigious and unique colouring system. It has many colouring options, that are listed on our services page. How we differ from other salons is that we go to Goldwell’s training academy in London at least twice a year to be updated with all the new colouring and cutting techniques, seeing all the latest on trend cuts and colours, so we can bring the latest city styles to our clients. Goldwell’s technicians also visit us four times a year for in-salon training. We are your Number One choice for Hairdressers in Islip.
